Putting Computer in sleep mode

I just purchased a new HP a couple of weeks ago.  Beginning yesterday, when I put the computer in "sleep" mode,it turns back on after a few minutes and stays on.  I am now having to manually turn the monitor off.  Can anybody tell me how to fix this problem and make sure it stays off when put into sleep mode?

Re: Putting Computer in sleep mode

A lot of times it has to do with where your mouse is, is it in the sun? does it get moved by a cat? is it on a reflective surface?

Have you installed anything new in your puter lately, have you ran a virius scan?, what is your sleep mode set to and what is your screen saver set to?

Kudos appreciated if question answered or solution provided

Bailey1973,

As you did not state the Win OS your using, I'll offer a guideline based on Vista. It discusses all the power settings, and modes, with examples:http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/63567-power-options-sleep-mode-problems.html

 

rickseybold,

same answer.

PS> IMHO, It would have been better to post your question as a new thread. It's reversing the original post.
